Kennedy High School’s Leadership Training Institute (LTI) To Celebrate 30th Anniversary

The Leadership Training Institute (LTI) at John F. Kennedy High School empowers students through a rigorous interdisciplinary education emphasizing experiential learning, community service projects, and leadership theory and application. LTI alumni and friends are invited on Oct. 6 to share  LTI memories and celebrate the 30-year anniversary of the program. The event will be held from 6–8:30 p.m. at Montgomery Country Club.

John F. Kennedy High School’s signature program empowers students through rigorous interdisciplinary experiential learning, community service projects, and leadership theory and application. The Leadership Training Institute is open by application to all Downcounty Consortium students.

  • LTI is founded on the pillars of participation, academics, community service, and ethics.
  • Leadership is a process, and the ability to lead effectively can be found in every person.
  • Curricula will be challenging, innovative, and inspiring.
  • Partnerships with school, community, business, and parents will support academic excellence.
  • Personal development will be nurtured and supported.

Remembering Mr. Frempong: Mr. Kofi Frempong was the coordinator of our LTI program from 2014-2023. He shaped the lives of countless students throughout these years. His creativity and positive energy made him one of the most beloved teachers our school has ever had. It is said that one is never truly gone as long as they are remembered by someone living; Mr. Frempong’s legacy will live on in the lives of the students he mentored and taught, the family members and friends who loved him all his life, and even those whom he met in passing who experienced a kind word or gesture from him. Mr. Frempong was the rare kind of person whose love stretches far outward not only through his own actions, but also through the hearts and minds of those to whom he was connected, creating a neverending stream of kindness, making the world a better place.
